A bit about the scent it self ... Angel is an oriental gourmand fragrance, one of the first in this category, launched in 1992 (the year I was born!) by Olivier Cresp and Yves de Chirin. Angel was the first of many perfumes from the house of Thierry Mugler, one of my favorite designers, and was aimed to evoke the emotion of tender childhood memories together with a sense of "dreamlike infinity" - see the advert *hint*.

On my skin Angel stays pretty linear and within about 45 minutes on my skin I can detect the patchouli becoming stronger and the sweetness of the opening toning down. The scent stays pretty much that way until the end. Angel is very long lasting with excellent silage, it lasted for around 8-10 hours on my skin with strong silage in the first 2-3 hours, then moderate silage after that. Angel is fast becoming a classic in perfumery and is still as popular as ever, it also received the FiFi Award Hall of Fame in 2007. I would recommend any fragrance lover to try this one out and to also test it over a period of time if you are not a fan at first sniff (just like my self), over time as your taste in fragrance change you may fall in love with Angel just like I did.
